Grigioperla for the Modern Gentleman
Grigioperla Uomo is my most recent buy from La Perla, still remembering how gorgeous was the first Grigioperla I bought in 1991. Together with the scent bottle, I got a quite big miniature made of metal, which I should still have stored somewhere in some place. That said, I believe that La Perla is celebrating a new era of casual luxury with this cologne. It is silky, luxurious and masculine... this timeless fragrance captures the perfect style of Grigioperla for the modern gentleman.

It's a cold start to the day, and this fragrance seems to be perfect. Uomo opens very masculinely with a playful blend of sparkling grapefruit, aromatic cypress and a unique bittersweet of anise. The bitter citrus fruit and the spicy aniseeds are the most prominent notes, they render an aqueous and watery vibe not in a salty or marine kind, while the cypress is lingering in the background without covering the other two. A charming and elegant opening on my skin, I like it.

A few minutes later, a heart of elegant heliotrope accented with tonic notes of white thyme creates a signature heart. The initial head develops into a buttery floral but with something inherently woody and masculine about it. That is the wooden accent added by the presence of the cedar, yet it is not like a pencil sharpener smell. Indeed, the floral and sweet heliotrope rules mostly balanced by the aromatic and green white thyme.

The base is all about oriental flavours of the all precious, soft, rounded and luscious vanilla beans, modern soft patchouli and animated by a balsamic touch of guaiac wood, a tiny bit smoky, not so strong nor similar to medicinal agarwood. The resulting blend ensures smooth finesse in the dry down for a great trail.

To me, Uomo is a soft, woody and creamy autumn fragrance. You don't smell many newish scents like this, so classy and understated. The projection is perfect, and the smell lasts for about 6 hours. I am a bit sad by the packaging and the bottle because the bottle has a sticker on a paper label. However, I guess I still haven't learnt 'never judge a book by its cover'. It is a cold seasons scent. spring and fall are fine, ideal for a business day, as well as a lazy weekend day.

Woody-aromatic with a quite good sillage, it could be the perfect everyday scent. As discrete and classy as a "50shades of grey" tie
